DofE Direct

DofE Direct is a direct way for 18-23 year olds to achieve their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award online and independently without the need to attend weekly sessions at a local DofE centre. You’ll be able to progress through your DofE activities in your own time with dedicated support from a DofE Leader via email and telephone.

“Overall my experience of DofE Direct has been positive, as it has allowed me to complete my Gold award which I wouldn’t have been able to do without it! I am looking forward to my Gold Presentation in the not so distant future.”
 – Danielle

“Thank you so much for your help! Doing DofE Direct via email has been so useful especially because I work 12 hour hospital shifts, so a lot of the time I would be unable to meet with a supervisor in person. Doing everything online makes it a more accessible task.”
 – Emma

“DofE Direct has been very helpful, especially when I didn’t know what to do Kelly & Jez would always help. Thank you.”
 – Alexander

“I found the service you have provided great so much easier then when I was in a group. You have been really helpful and really quick to get in contact with any questions I have.”
 – Ella
